Requesting elevated privileges

Some tools or operations on MDN require elevated access privileges not available to ordinary users.

If you want or need privileges for a tool, follow the steps below:

  1. Open a Bugzilla bug, which contains a description of what you need and why. Include your MDN account name.
  2. Make sure to explain why you meet the conditions gaining privileges, for each tool for which you're requesting privileges. See the "Conditions for gaining this privilege" section for the tool(s) in question.
  3. You need two peers for that tool to vouch for you in the bug.
  4. Once 1-3 above are met, one of the MDN admins can grant you access to the tool(s) you need.

In case of misuse, abuse, or a significant problem (like a newly discovered dangerous bug in the tool), any admin can suspend access to a tool at any time.
